April 2017: Partnering for Cures is Heading to Innovation Hotspots

Recently, Forbes declared Boston and San Francisco as the biotech innovation clusters. This is why we are excited to bring Partnering for Cures (P4C) to these two cities this year. Join us for P4C Boston on July 12 and P4C San Francisco on Nov. 14.

Since 2009, P4C has been convening leaders with the experience, creativity and motivation needed to transform the medical research system. This year, we have been inspired by our new locations to do some innovating of our own, and we are changing up the way we conduct these meetings. Each meeting will be a smaller, carefully curated and highly interactive experience. In Boston, look for sessions on partnering locally for productivity and how the federal landscape impacts the ecosystem. In San Francisco, we will explore how the tech industry is influencing life sciences and why medical research needs more data scientists. More »

FasterCures Receives PCORI Award to Implement User-centered Design Health Data Tool

Do your patients know where their health data live? Our work with TRAIN organizations has helped us recognize that most patients haven't been informed about the complex data infrastructure that supports their health care. With support from the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award program, FasterCures has launched a survey to understand patients' experiences and understanding of health data. The information from the survey will be used to shape an educational tool for patients. We would appreciate you sharing the survey with patients and caregivers to help increase our level of understanding. You can take or share the survey here and find out more about the project on its siteMore »
